Members operating private clinics can insure the practice assets, revenues under a comprehensive package of covers which includes Employers Liability, Public Liability, and a range of valuable Legal Expenses Insurance.
The CSP’s PLI scheme is designed for the benefit of individual members rather than corporate businesses. Clinics trading as a Partnership or Private Limited Company should assess their liability insurance needs and purchase separate cover where appropriate. The information leaflet ‘Guide to CSP & Business Insurance’ helps identify the liability covers needed, a copy of which can be downloaded from the above link.
Locum Insurance Cover can meet practice expenses if you can’t work due to Accident, Illness, Jury Service , or Compassionate Leave. There are three levels of cover, with various options to suit your practice.
